June 23, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces a partnership with Editage, the flagship brand of Cactus Communications (CACTUS), a technology company accelerating scientific advancement, to offer its Research Promotion Solutions for authors through the growing community of RightsLink® for Scientific Communications publishers.

As scholarly publishers diversify revenue streams due to changing market dynamics, it’s imperative they protect and strengthen relationships with influential and emerging authors. This strategic collaboration between CCC and Editage gives RightsLink publishers the immediate ability to offer high-impact research promotion solutions to authors at the time of manuscript acceptance without incurring additional overhead.

In the increasingly competitive world of scholarly research, publishers seek creative, cost-effective ways to expand the range of services for their authors as a means to build loyalty and ensure a continuous stream of submissions. Publishing in a prestigious journal is important to building an author’s brand, and authors must also find ways to build visibility for their research as funders and institutions look at new ways to assess research impact. With this partnership, an author whose manuscript has been accepted by a RightsLink publisher can order infographics, plain-language summaries, video, and news stories through RightsLink from the science communication experts at Editage in order to support the promotion of the research upon publication.

“An author needs to adopt the mindset that publishing a paper is only the beginning of making one’s research results visible to the world, and that they need to promote their findings to peers, adjacent peers, the public, and policymakers, in order to maximize societal impact,” said Donald Samulack, Head, Global Stakeholder Engagement, CACTUS. “We are excited to partner with CCC to enable RightsLink publishers to empower authors with the opportunity to consider research promotion solutions, along with other publication options through traditional and touch-free workflows at the final stages of the publishing process. All of these elements, although different in character, are equally important to the success of the published paper.”

The emergence of transformative agreements such as Read and Publish and Publish and Read, as well as of Pure Open Access, has changed the face of scholarly publishing. With its industry leading RightsLink for Scientific Communications solution, CCC leverages its extensive experience collecting, managing, and reporting of core Article Processing Charges (APCs) to give publishers new opportunities to grow and manage their businesses. RightsLink is trusted by 30 of the world’s leading publishers as they implement Open Access agreements with over 300 institutions and support thousands of authors from more than 125 countries. In the past year, RightsLink publishers have approved more than 1,500 Open Access and transformative agreement funding requests.

“Plan S and other funder mandates to accelerate Open Access continue to foster meaningful dialogue for change in scholarly publishing,” said Gretchen Gasser-Ellis, Vice President and Managing Director, Publisher Solutions, CCC. “Our partnership with Editage will build on what publishers are doing to create new solutions within the scholarly publishing ecosystem and strengthen their strategic author programs.”

CCC is a trusted intermediary and recognized market leader uniquely positioned to facilitate dialog among key stakeholders in the author, publisher, institution, funding and vendor communities. CCC also encourages engagement across boundaries through an ongoing series of roundtables, panel events, webinars, podcasts and blogs. CCC is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), the International Association of STM Publishers (STM), and a Sustaining Member of the Society of Scholarly Publishing (SSP).

June 16, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces that RightsLink for Scientific Communications (RLSC), trusted by 30 leading publishers representing 2,400 journals, is managing Open Access (OA) agreements with more than 300 institutions.

RLSC helps publishers manage author transactions and supports a variety of transformative agreements, including Read and Publish, Publish and Read, and Pure OA with a ‘touch-free’ workflow that doesn’t require author involvement. This not only facilitates alignment with mandates such as Plan S, but also improves transparency, reduces friction for the author, and lowers costs for all parties. With support for pre-paid funder and publisher accounts, RightsLink is the only solution that enables Read and Publish agreements between publishers and institutions without requiring author involvement.

“RightsLink provides a seamless experience for key stakeholders pursuing and supporting open access publishing,” said James Baldini, Senior Director, American Chemical Society (ACS) Publications Sales Operations. “Now we can meet a market need to provide our institutional partners with a user friendly and scalable workflow solution in this space.”

RightsLink Network Effect
Because RightsLink is used by so many of the world’s top publishers, CCC is able to bring a broad and advanced set of capabilities to all publishers, funders, institutions and authors using the RightsLink platform.

“The RightsLink network effect drives collaboration, partnership and innovation in the evolving scientific publishing ecosystem,” said Gretchen Gasser-Ellis, Vice President and Managing Director, Publisher Solutions, CCC. “There’s strength in numbers, as evidenced by these milestones. The power of the RightsLink network effect goes beyond publishers and extends to the authors, funders and institutions who trust the solution’s familiar user experience and flexible workflow.”

CCC is a trusted intermediary and recognized market leader uniquely positioned to facilitate dialog among key stakeholders in the author, publisher, institution, funding and vendor communities. CCC also encourages engagement across boundaries through an ongoing series of roundtables, panel events, webinars, podcasts and blogs. CCC is a member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), the International Association of STM Publishers (STM), and a Sustaining Member of the Society of Scholarly Publishing (SSP).

Transformative Agreements Town Hall
CCC will present a virtual Town Hall on Thursday, 18 June at 10:00 EDT/15:00 BST/16:00 CEST to review the latest developments in Transformative Agreements and foster a discussion on how innovation is answering the Open Access challenge.

Explore the Scientific Publishing Ecosystem

Last year, CCC and Outsell, Inc., the voice of the data, information and analytics economy, hosted an interactive, strategic discussion with senior industry executives on ‘The Future of Science’ and what it means for all stakeholders in London. The program featured senior policy makers, scholarly and society publishers, funders, institutions and researchers focused on the value chain, implicit and explicit reward systems, and what may need to shift to improve scientific research. To guide the discussion, CCC and Outsell collaborated to produce a detailed map of the research ecosystem and an accompanying report highlighting stakeholders, contributions and rewards, and suggesting areas of opportunity. The map does not construct a new, ideal process but rather reflects today’s common language and understanding of the ecosystem from the perspective of each stakeholder.

“The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting every aspect of our lives while rewriting the rules for business, academia, engineering, publishing and the media,” said Tracey Armstrong, President and CEO, CCC. “Copyright Clearance Center acknowledges the remarkable work that publishers have done to adjust to this new reality nearly overnight.”

CCC recently announced its Education Continuity License to enable creative approaches to remote teaching and distance learning made necessary by the pandemic as a result of educators across the U.S. asking questions about using copyrighted content and materials in innovative new ways to support distance learning. In response, CCC coordinated with its community of rightsholders to authorize the use of their materials at no cost by educators as required by the pandemic during this time of emergency. CCC is not delivering educational materials or content to educators; it is offering this new license to authorize U.S. school districts, educators, parents and others to make immediate additional uses of materials that they have previously lawfully acquired.

To accelerate sharing of knowledge and ease online learning, CCC is continually updating its resource page of educational resources open for K-12 and higher education during the COVID-19 crisis. CCC recognizes publishing and other information organizations for contributing to the common good by providing access to relevant COVID-19 content and created this living list to amplify the availability of open-to-read material. CCC has also gathered data visualizations, dashboards, and datasets related to COVID-19. Access those resources here.

CCC’s Statement on Business Continuity During the COVID-19 Crisis
CCC operates globally and has a well-established, detailed Business Continuity Plan as part of its rigorous SOC2 (Type 2) and ISO 27001 compliance programs. CCC is taking COVID-19 seriously and recognizes that it has and will continue to cause substantial business disruption.

CCC operations continue uninterrupted. Its products and services are fully available and global customer support teams continue to provide outstanding service.

CCC puts the health and safety of its customers, staff and families, above all else. It has taken prophylactic steps to mitigate risk of infection and to provision for continuous, uninterrupted service. It placed restrictions on all business travel and has enabled employees to work from home. CCC employees are prepared to work from home for an extended period without compromising established security protocols or impacting productivity.

CCC’s leadership receives a daily briefing, aggregating essential developments from numerous organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO), CDC, local governments, and relevant health authorities. It continues to follow expert guidance and implement recommendations as appropriate.

March 24, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces its Education Continuity License to enable creative approaches to remote teaching and distance learning made necessary by the pandemic.

Over the past several days, educators across the U.S. have contacted CCC with questions about using copyrighted content and materials in innovative new ways to support distance learning. In response, CCC is coordinating with its community of rightsholders to authorize the use of their materials at no cost by educators as required by the pandemic during this time of emergency. CCC is not delivering educational materials or content to educators; it offers this new license to authorize U.S. school districts, educators, parents and others to make immediate additional uses of materials that they have previously lawfully acquired.

The authorization will run through mid-summer 2020, at which time CCC will work with rightsholders to assess whether an extension may be necessary. CCC will not collect fees from any party and will administer this service for no cost. CCC has posted a form on its website so that educators can look up participating publishers and record their use of lawfully acquired copyrighted materials. In just a few days, more than 40 publishers have agreed to grant these rights at no cost through this license.

As schools and educators quickly shift from in-classroom to in-home teaching, CCC is also providing regularly updated learn-at-home resources links on its homepage from a variety of educational publishers and content providers to help and support teachers and children.

“I’m incredibly impressed by the innovation and creativity demonstrated by teachers, educators, and publishers during this time of crisis,” said Tracey Armstrong, President and CEO, CCC. “This license provides an added measure of support requested by talented education professionals, and we are happy to contribute in this crisis by bringing these creative licenses, offered by a growing number of publishers, to educators who need them most.”

March 17, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, won a Bronze Stevie® Award for Customer Service Department of the Year in the 14th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top honors for customer service, contact center, business development and sales professionals. The Stevie Awards organizes eight of the world’s leading business awards programs, also including the prestigious American Business Awards® and International Business Awards®.

The awards were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Friday, 28 February at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV. More than 600 executives from the U.S. and several other nations attended. Winners were determined by the average scores of more than 180 professionals worldwide on seven specialized judging committees.

“Stevie Award winners from around the world should be very proud of their achievements. The judges were impressed with the vast range of nominations submitted for 2020 and have agreed that their accomplishments are worthy of public recognition,” said Stevie Awards Executive Chairman, Michael Gallagher.

“As hard as we work to provide outstanding products and services,” said Tracey Armstrong, President and CEO, CCC, “we work even harder to back them up with a world-class customer experience. We know high-quality support is key to a comprehensive solution.”

Here’s what the judges had to say about CCC:

“Empowering agents is something senior management is sometimes hesitant to do. Great to see that is a focus for you.”

“I absolutely loved their commitment to ensuring each of their customers has a unique experience vs. utilizing bots and scripts – this is vastly important.”

“Quantity and quality of work is outstanding. Well done on investing in your customer service department.”

March 10, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, hosted an “Ask the Experts” program with MassBio, a not-for-profit organization that represents and provides services and support for the world’s leading life sciences supercluster.

The interactive Q&A session addressed how life science organizations find, access, share and manage scientific literature in a copyright-compliant manner.

Key points of discussion included:

• Every time an employee shares a document either by storing it in a collaboration tool, e-mailing it, or photocopying it, a new copy of the work is created. Sharing additional copies either internally with colleagues or externally with healthcare providers or in a regulatory submission generally requires additional permission.

• Many researchers who have moved from academia to start-up companies do not realize that continuing to use their university credentials is not appropriate when doing research in a corporate setting.

• Attributing a source in a paper or presentation does not necessarily eliminate the need to obtain the copyright holder’s consent for use beyond the traditional limits associated with fair use. To lawfully use more than brief quotations from copyrighted materials, one must secure permission (or hold some other kind of license) from the respective copyright holders or their agents.

• To simplify copyright-compliant access to scientific literature in the workplace, organizations are turning to software solutions that mitigate risk by facilitating subscription access and individual article purchase (also known as document delivery) through an integrated content workflow.

CCC’s RightFind® content workflow solution provides fast, easy access to a full range of published content – anytime, anywhere – providing a more efficient research process and competitive advantage. Last year, the company introduced a custom version of RightFind for emerging life science companies.

“Emerging life science companies have the same needs as established firms – getting information into the hands of researchers quickly and removing roadblocks to innovation,” said Lauren Tulloch, Vice President and Managing Director, Corporate Solutions, CCC. “We are committed to providing life science companies of all sizes with seamless access to high-value content from subscription, licenses and internal data through intuitive software and service offerings.”

MassBio helps advance Massachusetts’ leadership in life sciences to grow the industry, add value to the healthcare system and improve patient lives. Representing more than 1,300 biotechnology companies, academic institutions, disease foundations and other organizations involved in life sciences and healthcare, MassBio leverages its unparalleled network of innovative companies and industry thought leaders to advance policy and promote education, while providing member programs, events, industry information, and services.

With 40 years’ experience working with content creators and users, CCC has a long history of building efficient solutions to address industry challenges. Led by content workflow experts who communicate regularly with research organizations around the globe, CCC manages over 950 million rights while promoting collaboration and simplifying copyright compliance.

March 5, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces its alternate digital London Book Fair 2020 programming.

“We recognize the difficulty in making the decision not to go ahead with this year’s London Book Fair given global health concerns,” said Tracey Armstrong, CEO, CCC. “CCC is now scheduling virtual broadcasts, webinars, podcasts and blog posts based on planned sessions for the London Book Fair. We believe in the strength of the content and the importance of the message for the publishing community.”

Discussion topics to be presented online include transformative agreements, Open Access, and Metadata and the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market:

Find the Right Combination: How Transformative Agreements Unlock Sustainable Open Access
For the transition to Open Access to be sustainable over time, publishers are forging new partnerships that will lead to frictionless, flexible, and scalable workflows for funders, institutions, and researchers. Successful collaboration among libraries, publishers, researchers, and intermediaries will also ensure diversity in the post-Plan S scholarly publishing ecosystem. Panelists will share insights into how they’ve adapted systems to support emerging needs under terms of Transformative Agreements. For example, solutions that incorporate multiple sources of funding into the Open Access payment stream – and without disrupting the author journey from submission to publication – are increasingly seen as basic requirements.

• Sara Bosshart, Open Access Publisher, International Water Association
• Lesley Boyle, Business Development Director, Academic, Cambridge University Press
• Jennifer Goodrich, Director, Product Management, Publisher Solutions, CCC
• Rob Johnson, Director, Research Consulting Limited
• Niamh O’Connor, Chief Publishing Officer, PLOS

A Common Lot and a Lot in Common: Publishers and Researchers Today
Researchers and publishers have much in common. Dr. Milka Kostic recently told the Scholarly Kitchen blog that both “want to make a difference – they want to advance human health and wellbeing, the health of our planet, and of our society.” Spurred by the movement toward Open Access and Open Science, scholarly publishers have taken up a range of new approaches to strengthen relationships with researchers. Transformative Agreements, for example, prescribe educational programs on Open Access publishing for scholars. On their own and with third-party vendors, publishers also provide editorial assistance, social media services, and career development guidance. Attendees will learn how they too can find common ground with their researcher-contributors.

• Pablo Palmeiro, Vice President, Publisher and Society Partnerships, CACTUS
• Rosalind Pyne, Director, Open Access Books, Springer Nature
• Kathryn Sharples, Senior Director, Open Access, Wiley

Get Fit for Licensing: Healthy Metadata and the EU Copyright Directive
Over the next two years, EU member states are required to adopt the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market, which was enacted in 2019. Importantly for scholarly publishers (whether based in the EU or not), this Directive provides a clear and explicit formulation of the legal status of copying materials for text and data mining (TDM) and other types of information extraction. While a narrow, non-commercial exception for scientific research does exist, the Directive leaves in place critical protections around licensing. To capitalize on any opportunities, publishers must maintain clean, reliable metadata related to, for example, authors, institutions, license types, and citations. The session will outline first steps for a metadata “fitness” program.

events, webinars, podcasts, and published pieces. CCC is a member of OASPA (Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association), ALPSP (Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers), STM (International Association of STM Publishers) and SSP (Society of Scholarly Publishing).

Most recently, CCC and Outsell, Inc., the voice of the data, information and analytics economy,
hosted an interactive, strategic discussion with senior industry executives on ‘The Future ofScience’ and what it means for all stakeholders. The program featured senior policy makers, scholarly and society publishers, funders, institutions and researchers focused on the value chain, implicit and explicit reward systems, and what may need to shift to improve scientific

February 11, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces the year-round expansion of its ‘We Not Me’ charity initiative.

Last June, almost 500 CCC employees in the U.S., U.K., Spain, and Romania volunteered on behalf of 20 charities, serving economically disadvantaged persons, assisting victims of domestic violence, helping people with disabilities and working in support of environmental causes. CCC staff members are also engaged with programs for kids entering foster care and other children’s services organizations.

As part of the expanded ‘We Not Me’ initiative, CCC team members will be participating in these activities year-round. Activities in 2020 will include preparing and serving meals at a shelter, volunteering at a hospice, running in a charity race such as the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge, and donating to organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence and the American Himalayan Foundation.

“While we’ve long supported an annual holiday gift drive and created various opportunities to volunteer, this enhanced ‘We Not Me’ program puts a focus on philanthropy throughout the year,” said Tracey Armstrong, CEO, CCC. “We’ve created an environment where we help foster individual social responsibility – making it easy for colleagues to find an outlet for their time, money and in-kind contributions amidst their very busy lives.”

With a history of innovation and growth in a dynamic market, a passionate and dedicated team, and a deep commitment to building next-generation content and licensing solutions using the best technology and talent, CCC offers its employees a plethora of opportunities for growth and mission driven work, while providing very competitive benefits. The CCC team is always learning, developing new skills, and exploring new and better ways to help society clear a path to information, discovery, and the next ‘big idea.’
